R.C.A.F. CL-84

A photo walk around of an usual subject

Ottawa Air Museum 

The Canadair CL-84 "Dynavert", designated by the Canadian Forces as the CX-131, was a V/STOL turbine tiltwing monoplane designed and manufactured by Canadair between 1964 and 1972. Only four of these experimental aircraft were built with three entering flight testing. Two of the CL-84s crashed due to mechanical failures, but no loss of life occurred as a result of these accidents. Despite the fact that the CL-84 was very successful in the experimental and operational trials carried out between 1972 and 1974, no production contracts resulted.                                                                                                                       Source: Wikipedia

Annual Scale Model Show @ Huddersfield (2017) Photos by Martin Higgs and Harold Smith

For the first time in about 10years I was able to make "Hudders" I missed both the show and the annual beer bash and curry. This of course was good news for some of the "What If" S.I.G. as I didnt leave anything behind or loose any of my s**t for them to post back to me.
